Johanna Alemann is believed to be the first woman filmmaker, operating as a sole proprietor, to run an academic film company in North America. Her focus was mainly on art. Her 'Nature as Impression' highlights Alemann’s painterly use of the camera to record nature scenes that she turns into cinematic impressionism. She includes an analysis of Impressionist paintings as they relate to color and shading in nature, focusing on Impressionists Manet, Monet, and Renoir, and Post-Impressionists Cezanne, Seurat, and Van Gogh.
In 2013, it is anticipated that all of her films will be uploaded to the Academic Film Archive of North America collection at the Internet Archive. For more on Alemann, visit http://www.afana.org/alemann.htm
